Pictures for Display: "Things With Stings"

i am my group, scabies ( http://scabies.myfreeforum.org/index.php ) have informational displays at
i would like to have a display of all the dif ways arthropods can envenomate (or chemically hurt you... what exactly would you call what assassins do?)

so far i can think of

Spiders : Fangs, modified chelicerae
Scorpion : Aculeus, modified terminal body segment?
Centipede : Forciples, modified legs
Pseudoscorpion : Claws, modified pedipalps

Assassin bugs : Proboscis, modified mouthparts (injects digestive enzymes, could be a nice like segue into the proper venoms)
Hymenoptera : Stings, modified ovipositer?

any other stingers?

i did think of jellyfish and pneumatocysts... but no one keeps them and we wouldn't have any pics that we control of them

so, i need good pictures of each bug and the business parts of each bug.

i would really like two pictures of each bug we are going to feature

1) whole body shot

2) just the injector, clear and well lit pic of it



i still need good pics of:
Assassin bugs : Proboscis, modified mouthparts (injects digestive enzymes, could be a nice like segue into the proper venoms)
Hymenoptera : Stings, modified ovipositer?


remember, i need a full body shot and a good clear shot of the venom equipment!



here it is so far

THANKS!

How about giant water bugs?

Check the parent directory for more pics around #37ish. The folks who took those shots (Dragontears on AB and her husband) are pretty relaxed about their photography, but you can ask her just in case.

i got a pic of an assassin, but am looking to possibly "upgrade" to a pic pair that more clearly shows the proboscis







ok, Version 1.0 is done Smile

thanks to everyone who contributed and submitted pics

if anyone who is not in scabies wants to get the file to use for their own displays email me cacoseraph@yahoo.com to hear the terms (basically just credit scabies and include a link to our forum and you can use it Smile )
